Another week gone by, some nice days, but it’s still raining. We are susceptible to uncomfortable memories, and although the river rose to over 1400 cubic feet per second, it was much, much higher during the flood! True, it is scary, though.

Another week gone by, and a rainy one at that, with two inches of rain in April (however, the most was in 1876 with 8.7 inches in April). The flowers, lilac trees, and spirea are beautiful. “It is springtime in the Rockies.”
